I am writing today about a wonderful Challenge sponsored by ArtJewelryElements.
Each month, one of the lovely and very talented AJE Artists makes a special batch of hand-made components for their Team plus a few lucky guests to create with. I was super-surprised to be included as a guest participant this month. AND, it was such a treat since this CoM was made by one of my all-time favorite Artists, Rebekah Payne of Tree Wings Studio. Truly, I was giddy and there was a little squeal of glee!
So, what did I do with this lovely bead delight? After lots of experimenting, I decided to keep-it-simple. Rebekah's creative heart bead has a lovely shape, a rich gorgeous sheen and loads of texture that needed very little enhancement. I definitely did not want to detract from any of those wonderful qualities. Plus, since this creation would be staying with me (yup, this one is all mine!), I wanted to be true to the style of jewelry I love to wear...a bit sparkly, love bracelets (never leave home without one!), a little 'girly' and classic.
Keeping to my plan and goals, here is what I created..and I love love love it. I think we should call this the 'Be True' bracelet:
Thank you Rebekah and AJE!
Please do head over to AJE to see what everyone made for their April CoM Challenge!..that's where I'm going, right now...whoosh...
(PS: sorry I am a bit late posting today...Mom's apartment flooded! We've been trying to dry things and help-out there as much as possible. Water sure does move fast and makes a huge mess. Things should be back-to-normal by tomorrow..thank goodness. It's a lot for an 85 yr old to 'deal with' alone)
